Bloomsbury Publishing will publish the book of the second Woven Communities’ symposium held at the University of St. Andrews in 2017, which we participated in as a project team.
The book will be titled ‘The Material Culture of Basketry’.
Our section of the book will be along these lines:
Collaborative essay: Memories in the land, the sea, animals and in people’s stories on Lewis, Jon Macleod, (Artist, An Lanntair, Lewis). Hand memories in basket-work and net-making among people with dementia in Uist and Lewis, told through life-moment stories and associated images, Paula Brown (Arora, An Lanntair, Lewis).
This is such an exciting development for the Woven Communities work we shared with the University of St Andrews and other partners and for our research development in this phase of the project.
